I have two Food Savers, the upright kind from Sam's, that work so sporatically that I'm ready to change. I had 50 pounds of pulled pork ready to pack and got only 4, 5# bags to vacuum and seal correctly. The rest are in zip lock bags. Any recommendations short of a full blown commercial unit?

I have a Sorbent home model snorkel vacuum.  It is on this page I've had it for 5 years.  It does 2 deer a year and numerous fish.

Yep, I do. Most folks on here do not apparently freeze much ??? Got an upright freezer at my place full of different cuts of chicken, beef, baby backs, veggies,,, and as much ice as it will hold to keep it from running all the time.

I have 2 counter-top small vacuum units. One unit started failing, because it would not hold the vacuum after I sealed a product. I went back to read the directions,, duh,,,,. They both use either 8 inch or 11 inch bag rolls. The problem was me.

The very top of the freezer bag,, the part that is heated by the seal-strip must be COMPLETELY DRY before applying vacuum. If not, it will leak. Use a paper towel to wipe dry both surfaces of the bag before applying vacuum. If you are drawing liquid up from the product to the seal before vacuum, either dry the product more or make a longer bag.

A little secret i learned is to take a paper towel and fold it just above the meat and then seal it. when the liquid is moving torward the sealer it will be absorbed by the paper towel. you can take one paper towel and tear it several times and get about three to four bags out of it. you can also try cleaning the strips. Hope this helps.

That depends on what you are going to preserve. If you just want to keep your food and leftovers in food condition, I'd recommend a Crazysales Maxkon vacuum sealer. I have one for myself, and it can serve almost every size of sealer bags. Best for household. If you are about to save something bigger, then a food saver would be the better choice. Just remember don't freeze those you sealed for very long time, or the water left in them will be crystalized and that makes the food spoiled.

Picking the right sealer is dependent upon the quantity of food you would want to store and the magnitude of your meal you prefer to store. Vacuum sealers are the best way to obtain more out of your food you purchase. With proper storage, they are able to significantly extend the lifespan on your food, prevent spoilage, and reduce waste. They're a highly effective money-saving tool that benefits homeowners and families, and food lovers. Seems to do a better job at protecting meat. I will use the Crazysales vacuum packaging machine for processed meat like sausage, sticks, etc as well as the good chops and steaks. I will use the paper for trimmings or stuff I've already ground up and plan on processing into something else in the not so distant future. Them freezer bags get spendy.
